You will learn about the habitat needs, benefits of, and threats to our nine species of bats. Find out how you can create bat habitat in your own back yard and help us monitor the populations of bats that sometimes call our homes their own.

The River Corridor, Floodplains, and Riparian Habitat

The network of streams and rivers across Vermont is critically important for climate resilience. These places are dynamic systems, constantly changing and home to incredible biological diversity as well as many other functions and values. In this collaborative presentation, join a panel of planners from the Agency of Natural Resources to learn about these unique ecosystems at several scales: as part of a larger watershed and network of connected lands and waters, as a unit for town planning, and as dynamic places for river processes.

Act 171: Selecting Forest Blocks & Habitat Connectors for Your Town Plan

Act 171 requires towns to identify and protect forest blocks and habitat connectors. But what exactly does that mean? And how do you figure out which blocks and connectors are most valuable to wildlife and your community? Join the Community Wildlife Program at Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department to learn a step-by-step selection process. We'll explain the background science and help towns select areas to prioritize that meet Act 171 requirements and make sense for their community.
